WatchOS 2 Download Now Available for Apple Watch


WatchOS 2 was supposed to be available last week with iOS 9, but Apple delayed it due to a bug. Just now, watchOS 2 is now available as a download over-the-air. WatchOS 2 brings new watch faces, along with native third-party apps which should make for much faster load times.

Just launch the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Software Update to get the download, which stands at 515MB. You will be require a Wi-Fi network for the download, plus at least 50% battery life on your Apple Watch. We’re updating our watch now and will follow up shortly.

    Wish I could get this via iTunes! We don’t have wifi at work…boo!! Have to wait 5 hours until I get home.

    Just started update showing 57 minutes remaining. Server must be really busy.

  • Felipe

    not working for me, it’s saying I’m not connected to the internet (but I am)

  • Yeah, maybe it was a smart move to delay the release, because I could only imagine the strain of iOS 9 + watchOS 2 in a single day on servers.

    Not available for me…

    It was giving me the same error last week as well(before the update was released).
